  • 1 3/4 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1 can (10 3/4 oz) reduced-sodium cream of celery soup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry, if desired
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

    Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In cooker, mix all ingredients except half-and-half, almonds, sherry and parsley.

  • Look for a bag of julienne-cut carrots or French-cut cooking carrots in the refrigerated vegetable section of your grocery store.
